    hello all,
    I'll get right to the point I'm from central Minnesota and was approached by a manager of a Walmart here for bidding on snow service. I've never bid anything on that big of scale any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance Justin.

    If it's too big for you to handle don't try bidding it.
    It could really burn you.

    I advise starting with driveways, small neighborhoods, small business parking lots. You should NOT start with large properties, end of story.

    Most big box stores are a pain to deal with if you're a small company.

    I say, continue plowing girlfriend...

    Don't get married

    Have fun plowing girlfriend, but if her girlfriends want plowing as well, then oblige them with her permission.


    Nuff said....
